Entry date: 3-20-2023 - Show Day, as such (and Mary) - Letters to My Friends

Dear Friends,


Happy Monday. A short one today as it is back to work and back to rock day for me. I'm excited on all accounts, actually, as I have kind of missed my students a little bit. I'm excited to get busy with the business of finishing the school year.


I'm also excited to get busy making the loud, rock and roll, boom boom noises tonight. Even though I have been pretty happy with The Father Figures taking a break, it does feel really good to be making music with Bobby and Michael right now. Tonight will be a good one, I think, and we should be home by 10:30pm at the latest.


I hope everyone starts the week out well.

Mary stared at Connie's lifeless body hanging from her porch ceiling. She felt her phone buzzing in the pocket of her pants. Without thinking about it, Mary reached into her pocket and brought the phone into her view. She had several text messages from her home phone.


Message 1:

You killed your friend for me? I am touched. Who will you kill next? I think Randy. Kill Randy and you are free.


Message 2: Kill Randy and you are free.

Kill Randy and you are free.

Kill Randy and you are free.

Kill Randy and you are free.

Kill Randy and you are free.

Kill Randy and you are free.

Kill Randy and you are free.

Kill Randy and you are free.

Kill Randy and you are free.

Kill Randy and you are free.

Kill Randy and you are free.


Message 3:

Call him now.


Mary looked up again expecting to see Connie hanging there, but she was gone. In her place was the fan again, spinning lazily. Mary's eyes quickly darted to the corner of the house to see if Connie was laying where she had seen her last, but again, she was gone.


"Con?" Mary shouted.


There was no answer.


"Con? Where are you?"


There was no answer. Mary ran to the side of the house where the panel was, but Connie wasn't there. She continued around to the back gate and fumbled with the combination lock. 6-1-2. Her dad's birthday. She got the lock to work and ran through the gate as soon as she was able to get the latch undone.


Mary expected to see Connie's car in front of the house, but it wasn't there.

See you soon.



We didn't end up playing this show as Bobby was sick. I think he had COVID, even though it wasn't supposed to be in the US yet. JJCNV took our place. Sadly, it was one of the last Death Eyes shows. Their singer died unexpectedly a few weeks later.
